Read full description of the books Fortunini miljenici - Moćnici i ratnici:Sula jeste mrtav, ali njegova sen lebdi nad Rimom, a njegovo ustrojstvo i dalje nalaže pravila ponašanja čak i budućim gospodarima Rima. Nepobedivi ratnik, blistavi ljubimac svetine, Pompej Veliki, čije želje ruše običajne granice, osetiće ukus poraza u Španiji. Čovek koji je tvrdio da je istinski bogat samo onaj ko je u stanju da izdržava sopstvenu vojsku, uvek staloženi Marko Kras, pokazaće kako ume da bude hitar kad to okolnosti zahtevaju. Rim strahuje da će ga ova dvojica častoljubaca uvesti u novi građanski rat. Razmaženom Pompeju, proračunatom Krasu i užasnutom Rimu razrešenje će podariti mudri Cezar.
Read information about the authorColleen Margaretta McCullough was an Australian author known for her novels, her most well-known being The Thorn Birds and Tim.
Raised by her mother in Wellington and then Sydney, McCullough began writing stories at age 5. She flourished at Catholic schools and earned a physiology degree from the University of New South Wales in 1963. Planning become a doctor, she found that she had a violent allergy to hospital soap and turned instead to neurophysiology – the study of the nervous system's functions. She found jobs first in London and then at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.
After her beloved younger brother Carl died in 1965 at age 25 while rescuing two drowning women in the waters off Crete, a shattered McCullough quit writing. She finally returned to her craft in 1974 with Tim, a critically acclaimed novel about the romance between a female executive and a younger, mentally disabled gardener. As always, the author proved her toughest critic: "Actually," she said, "it was an icky book, saccharine sweet."
A year later, while on a paltry $10,000 annual salary as a Yale researcher, McCullough – just "Col" to her friends – began work on the sprawling The Thorn Birds, about the lives and loves of three generations of an Australian family. Many of its details were drawn from her mother's family's experience as migrant workers, and one character, Dane, was based on brother Carl.
Though some reviews were scathing, millions of readers worldwide got caught up in her tales of doomed love and other natural calamities. The paperback rights sold for an astonishing $1.9 million.
In all, McCullough wrote 11 novels.
